    Just a tree

    A Wild Cherry as we call them in Vic.

    The boys have started,well some of them have,I expect the big boys to take another couple of months yet.


    Anyway a sight so welcome after seeing so many dry trees with nary a touch since last year.

    Bas, early out of velvet the points are sharp as and the coronet edges are very very sharp also.
    Combined with the massive strength of sambar stags they can and will remove a lot of bark in a session.
    However the trees stand up to it year after years,I know of trees that have been given a flogging for 20 years..or more!
    Like an Aboriginal 'canoe tree' 99% of the cherry trees recover.
